    Default Result after Interview (for SMC application)

    Hello,

    Has anyone experienced a delay of knowing the result after the interview? The immigration officer said she will give her decision within 10 working days (roughly two weeks). Right now, it's been 11th day and I'm getting worried.

    There is ALWAYS a delay.

    The CO is able to reach a conclusion almost immediately as to what result s/he intends to recommend, but is not allowed to tell the applicant yet. Every completed case has to be referred to another official to be checked over, looking for errors, and to guard against the possibility of corruption, before the result is made public (the second-person check, or 2pc). There is a queue for the 2pc, and how long it is varies with the volume of work and such matters as staff sickness or training in that office. We have seen 2pcs go through in HOURS, or MONTHS, but most go through in the middle ground of a few weeks.

    When your CO said she would have decided in 10 days, the most likely thing she had in mind was that that would be when she would pass your file over for 2pc, I guess. Try to be calm and not expect any answer yet, because it would be MOST unusual for it to be this soon.

    Hi Silverspoon,

    You will get the outcome in ~10 days. As JandM said, it should be with 2pc. Just wait for the golden moment anytime.

    Hi Silverspoon,

    I also experienced the delay as my interview was on 21/1/2016 and CO told me that she will give the outcome by end of January. However, I have not received any update as of now.
